I have learned that this happened to Indigo before but I am using Melodic. the moveit-setup-assistant was working for me just last week. Suddenly, it does not display the robot after loading the model!

This is most likely ros-planning/moveit#2286 which has already been fixed.

what is the #786 you include in your title?

Edit: the issue you refer to. While a similar issue, it's so old it's unlikely to be related.

I too am having this issue. Even loading moveit configurations that worked fine in the past (just a week or two ago) no longer show the robot. Rviz works fine (demo.launch or my own setups) I did just update my apt packages, I'm not sure how long it had been since I had done so.

Going to the "Robot Poses" tab and selecting a pose seems to make the robot show up and subsequently function as normal, except if I go back to the "Robot Poses" tab it crashes (seg fault).

The issue reported by the OP has been fixed.

Please refer to the issue I linked in my initial comment.

What hasn't happened yet, is a MoveIt release since it has been fixed.

So the binaries you are most likely using still have the problem.

There's little use in reporting the issue again, as it's a known one, and a solution is already available.

Even loading moveit configurations that worked fine in the past (just a week or two ago) no longer show the robot

the issue is not caused by "new configurations", so loading old ones does not change anything or help.

I would suggest to check the linked issue and follow-up there.
